Lille Natural History and Geology Museum

Interesting
Long metal passageways, stuffed animaux, skeletons suspended from the ceiling, rows of amphibians in jars, colourful displays of stuffed birds: this interesting and well-curated museum has a wonderful, slightly old-fashioned atmosphere. Whale skeletons and replicas of prehistoric animals, including a sea predator from the Jurassic period, greet you at the entrance. The museum also organises at least one temporary exhibition per year.
